Petting zoos and pony rides are always a great way to celebrate the holidays. Bring your event to life by including friendly, interactive animals in your Christmas or Easter Program.
Living Nativity Nothing will draw attention to your nativity scene like live animals! The living nativity package includes 8 animals – sheep, goats, an alpaca, a miniature cow and a donkey.
Traditional Petting Zoos Choose a 10, 20 or 30 animal petting zoo. All zoos include chickens, ducks, rabbits, sheep, goats, an alpaca and a miniature horse or miniature donkey. Larger zoos include specialty animals such a mini cow, pig or giant tortoise. Children get to feed the animals. Hand sanitizer provided.
Pony Rides Deciding how many ponies you’ll want depends on your crowd size. Smaller events usually include 1 or 2 hand led ponies, while larger events can feature a 3 or 6 pony carousel. A good rule of thumb is that each pony can give up to 20 rides in an hour. Request a large pony for children over 75 lbs.
Not all restrictions are a bad thing! Nothing is more important to us than keeping our animals safe and happy. Because of this, we are unable to offer the following services:
- Animal Productions: Our animals are pets and they are great at what they do. We are unable to use them in shows, productions, or anything that involves them being led around by non-staff members or brought up on stage.
- Indoor Events: Many animals do not like going indoors. We cannot bring outdoor animals inside.
- Baby Animals: We keep all of our animals for life, so we don’t have a consistent supply of baby animals. Be wary of anyone who does.
- Camel or Donkey Rides
Do you have insurance?
Yes, we are fully insured. You can download a copy of our insurance certificate under “Customer Support.” If you need to be listed as additionally insured, there is a one time fee of $45.00. We are also USDA licensed and accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
How much space do I need?
The 10 animal petting zoo and live nativity require a minimum of 15×15 ft and can even be condensed to the size of a one car garage. Hand led pony rides can be led around on lawns and in quiet parking lots. Pony carousels require approximately 30×30 ft. Specialty animals require additional space. We will also need room to park our vehicle.
What if it rains?
We have a very flexible cancellation policy. You can cancel or postpone your event at absolutely no penalty up until 24 hours prior to your start time. If you choose to proceed with your event, some services can be set up in garages or under awnings. We also offer tent rentals.
Will you arrive early for setup?
We will arrive approximately 30-60 minutes prior to your start time to setup (longer for very large events). We’ll need a place to park and access to the setup area. If your event is already in progress, children will need to be kept away from the setup area until all the animals are secured and we’re ready to start.
